Good Morning to you all and I thought I would share with you two cards done for the last Clarity Stamp show. The Toucan is a fascinating and almost comical bird! And the stamp does not disappoint! It's fab!
To go with the Toucan there are the most fantastic cheese plant leaves! We had a plant of this in our old house and it eventually took over a corner of our dining room! Unfortunately it did not survive the move!
Any way the first card took a lot of masking and then colouring but I think it looks great as if there were just a load of toucans all waiting for something.
The next card took a bit longer as I had to stamp and colour the leaves, then cut them out...its a good job I like cutting out!
The idea was that the leaves were the jungle and as you opened the jungle up inside a clearing were the toucans hiding!
Here's how the card looked closed
And here it is open
The leaves on the inside are stamped using the solid leaf shapes and 2 colours of ink. I ad stamped and masked the toucans onto the card so that they would be in front on the leaves. I did use a few that I had cut out around them to add a bit of dimension!
Thanks for looking! Have a lovely weekend.
